The Foundation's sole supported school in Argentina is Pablo Areguati, located in Iguazu. It is situated just a short distance from the village center of Puerto Iguazu, which has a population of 84,000, making it one of the few non-rural Gate 1 Foundation schools. The village is nestled in a valley within Missiones Province, in the far Northeast tip of Argentina, near the rain forest jungle landscape of the well-known destination of Iguazu Falls.
OUR IMPACTAt Pablo Areguati school, the Foundation provided funding for the installation of a roof for a gym and sports facility, which, due to exposure to the elements, had a poor floor surface, impeding footing for the physical activities for which the space was intended. A year later, additional improvements were made to the roof, connecting the sports area to the main school building. In addition to these building and infrastructure projects funded by the Foundation, Gate 1 invites tour passengers, who visit our schools as part of their itineraries, to bring small items that are needed but in short supply, to give to the school's students. In this way, Gate 1 Foundation is able to supplement its large-scale contributions with essential educational supplies, which students' families are often unable to afford, thereby multiplying our positive impact on communities.
